1026 - An Uneasy Peace...
Display Print - ready to hang
This Monarch butterfly was working a patch of flowers near Falls Point, Maine. The bee came and settled on the other side of the flower. For a moment there was an uneasy peace but, to my great surprise, the butterfly pushed the bee off the flower; the bee moved away to another flower; the butterfly followed and chased the bee again. Everywhere the bee landed the butterfly followed, sometimes landing on top of the bee making it perfectly clear that these flowers were off limits.
